Neil Cavuto Schools Young Liberal on Basic Economics
Apparently #MillionStudentMarch is a thing, where students are matching for the right to make ridiculous demands based on things they know nothing about. Neil Cavuto interviewed one of them, and it was brutal. By "brutal" we mean, OMG, stop what you're doing and watch this. Now.
NEIL CAVUTO: They’ve done studies on this, Keeley, I don’t want to get boring here, but even if you were to take the 1 percent and take all of their money — tax it 100 percent — do you know that couldn’t keep Medicare, just Medicare, in this country going for three years? Did you know that?
SJW: Yeah, I don’t believe that,” Mullen said in response. “Yeah, I’m sorry, that just sounds completely ludicrous to me.
This is the best part:
SJW: You know, people in your position, you know, don’t want to pay 90 percent in taxes, because...
CAVUTO: I dare say unless you’re high as a kite you wouldn’t volunteer to pay 90 percent.
Boom. Neil Cavuto, the unofficial World's Most Decent Guy, just murdered this woman in the politest way possible. I mean she got creamed. Like stabbed with a butter knife a thousand times, then spread like jelly on white privilege bread. Nom nom.
Here's the greater issue: this Keely girl with the lopsided ponytail and the valley girl speak (it's like Christmas came early, served in red cups) not only is she clueless about basic economics, she feels entitled to everything because she wants everything. Worse, she wants everything for nothing. She trots out the Bernie Sanders talking points about the top one percent needing the shaft because me, me, me, me, and doesn't change tack when Cavuto dons a satin glove and smacks her.
The future of our country, ladies and gentleman. Scared?
